Skin Prep for Spray Tan

Looking at grabbing a few bottles of the Jan Tana Skin Prep for exfoliation to help get a better result for the tan. I will be getting sprayed at 7am the day of the show. When and how often should I use the Skin Prep??

We do not recommend tanning beds to obtain a base color. If you choose to do so, DO NOT BURN, as you will start to peel and I will not be able to fix that part. Our solution and application technique will get you stage ready. This eliminates added expense, time and stress on your part.

· If you require more than a minor touch up or decide you want an additional spray session at the venue, the price will be an additional $25-55 depending on the initial package you chose  . Please make sure you discuss with us which tanning package will be best for you, to avoid additional charges the day of the show

Skin Preparation Instructions

* For maximum results, spend the week prior to your competition spray appointment exfoliating and moisturizing your body. The recommended competition exfoiater is Liquid Sun Rayz Citrus Sugar Scrub and Liquid Sun Rayz Citrus Body Butter as your moisturizer. The DAY OF your spray tan, DO NOT MOISTURIZE – EXFOLIATE ONLY. Below are instructions to properly exfoliate:
1) The week of  your competition tan  (Ideally Monday and Wed ) make a thick bricky paste of baking soda AND a non-moisturizing liquid gel soap such as Suave Naturals, and gently wash entire body. Then, using Liquid Sun Rayz Citrus Sugar Scrub, gently exfoliate from head to toe, with nylon exfoliating gloves or a nylon mesh cloth. The day of your tan only exfoliate and do not use the baking soda mixture. You may also shave using the sugar scrub as it starts to emulsify. Do Not Use Any Bar Soaps or other commercially made scrubs! Pay special attention to your knees, elbows, hands, feet and heels. The better condition your skin is in, the better the product will absorb, the more flawless your tan will look, and you will have a more even fade after your competition. *Avoid all loofa/loofah gloves, pads and sponges.  If you do not use Liquid Sun Rayz Citrus Sugar Scrub as your exfoliater, PLEASE MAKE SURE you wash again with the non-moisturizing liquid gel soap after exfoliating. This will ensure that there is not an excess of oily residue on your skin should your own choice of body scrub contains too much oil.
2) It is suggested that you have shaved at least 8 hours before your spray tan, preferably the night before, and all waxing completed at least 72 hours prior if you're accustomed to waxing. Otherwise, wax 7-10 days before your spray tan appointment. You cannot shave or shower after your color is applied until after your competition.
3) DO NOT put on any make-up, deodorant, perfume/cologne Before or After your spray tan application. These products will raise the skin's ph and turn your arm pits and body green! For men and women both, painting the finger and toenails with a clear polish will avoid staining of the nails. We will provide barrier cream for this purpose as well, which is easily wiped off after your tan application.
4) Come to us with clean, dry skin wearing dark, loose fitting clothing and flip flops. Do not wear any RED. The RED dye in cotton will tend to turn your skin GREEN!
5) An over sized  Hoodie and over sized drawstring (non elastic) waistband style sweatpants made of silky fabrics are best because they glide over your skin and won't disrupt the development of the bronzer. Avoid stiff fabrics and tops that you pull OVER your head. Tops that are buttoned down, or have snaps  are preferred. Avoid Zippers!  Do Not Wear Jeans!

6) Women can be sprayed nude due to competing in different posing suits. If you have long hair, please remember to bring a tie back to keep hair off your shoulders and neck. We will provide a cap for  you to wear.
7) Men may wear something smaller than their posing suit, if being sprayed nude is uncomfortable .For the best results, it is easier for us to spray without posing trunks , therefore we will provide socks for coverage. 
8) The actual spray tanning session takes about 20 minutes for the application and another 10-20 minutes to complete the drying process. You will feel slightly sticky for about an hour until completely dry.
9) After your color has been applied, please plan to sleep in your loose, over sized clothing until the morning. This will eliminate any inadvertent hand marks on your body during sleep.
10)DO NOT SHOWER or put on any deodorant, perfume/cologne until AFTER your competition.
11) Competitors scheduled with LSR assume ALL risk to any hotel property, not limited to soiling of linens. (Please be respectful and bring an extra set of sheets and towels)

I've used Jan Tana Skin Prep before spray tans, and it works wonders! Typically, I start exfoliating with it a couple of days before the spray tan session. Make sure to follow the instructions on the bottle, and for an added boost, I've found that combining it with supplements from really gives my skin a healthy glow from within.
